at the pentagon. officials say they are still working out details to finish this book how many u.s. forces should stay in afghanistan after 2014 when most combat troops are set to leave the country. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon for us tonight. what's the word on whether there they are seriously considering leaving troops in afghanistan after that time. >> well, leaving no troops there they call it the zero option, shepard. in fact, it was floated by the white house earlier this week ahead of president harmid karzai's visit here to washington. the afghan leader was at the pentagon and state department today. it was really an idea floated to get karzai's attention because many fear if there are no u.s. troops the country will revert to the taliban you have provided options not to the president yet but to the national security staff. as you know i don't speak about options until i have had a chance to speak to the president. >> at the state department president karzai is dining tonight with secretary clinton and leon panetta. he brought a long list of military equipment that karzai needs from

served in the pentagon and people who served in the clinton pentagon that are well thought of on a bipartisan basis . i don't know why the president wants him maybe he likes the fact that chuck hagel complained about the power of the jewish lobby and one of the few senators who voted against the iran sanction and refused to desigate the iranian guard as terrorist group. maybe he likes that record. >> one of the things that hagel gets dinged on is one on one negotiations on the nuclear program. he said i am not a pace 50 and i believe in using force but only after a decision making process. i will do everything i can to avoid needless and senseless war. nina, is that unreasonable for a secretary of defense to have? >> it is in line with where the president is going in terms of use not putting troops on the ground anymore. he made that clear. he wants to rely on unmanned drones in afghanistan and fight terrorism that way. i think brit is right he's in line with the president on the issues and if you go forward and look at spending cut that is are going to have to come down in

, bloated. he said the pentagon needs to be pared down. senator hagel also endorsed a report by the group global zero that called for cutting the u.s. weapons arsenal by 80%. the overall goal of global zero, as its name implies, global zero, is global zero nuclear weapons. but this 80% cut in our arsenal is a way to get there is something that chuck hagel has supported. what is the new face of the american military going to be after the end of the longest war in american history, which is afghanistan? the second longest war in american history is vietnam. to have three vietnam veterans in the cabinet running veterans, running state, running defense is a remarkable milestone for veterans of that war, just as a population group, and one that didn't necessarily get treated right by this country when their time at war ended. but for all of us, for all of us, no matter how old we are, for all of us, whether or not we had any connection to the vietnam politics the first time around, for all of us there is the question now of whether the president's decision to turn to these three vietnam combat

years working for michelle flournoy at the pentagon. great to see you. thanks for your time. >> glad to be here, rachel. >> in terms of the raw numbers, the obama administration is roughly equivalent to the clinton administration in terms of female appointees. it is doing better than the bush administration. but you feel like they're worthy of some criticism on this subject? >> oh, i hold president obama to a pretty high standard. i would like to think after the eight years of the bush administration, we could do a little better than the clinton administration, not just go back to the clinton administration. although i have to say, if i were valerie jarrett and i were about to go off the fiscal cliff, i would hide behind jay carney too. >> on the issue of michelle flournoy, you're not totally objecting on this. she is highly regarded in washington, not just by you, but by pretty much everybody in the defense establishment. were you surprised that she didn't get the nod? were you surprised that chuck hagel specifically did? >> i was surprised. i thought it was a fantastic opportunity

they did that deal, they kicked the cuts -- the cuts in the pentagon and the human services $1.2 trillion down the road for two months, so there may yet be a ton of spending cuts. that's what i'm hoping for, and i think -- i think the suggestion that there's got to be some significant pentagon spending cuts is exactly right. it hasn't been done for about 30 years and a lot of money in the pentagon budget is not asked for by the military, by congress people who have plants in their districts so, you know, there's a lot of room for cutting here. i agree with that. >> why aren't we doing any cuting? it seems like the -- >> nobody has the nerve. >> constantly surrounds tax increases, but even this, you know, with the top dems sending this letter to the president saying we believe that you've got to be willing to make -- take steps to ensure america doesn't break the promises and do not negotiate over the debt ceiling, it's all about, you know, stick to your way and don't negotiate. how come we're not just admitting what the issue is and just coming up with spending cut ideas? >> because nobod

picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton would say, give me a break. and this isn't about israel's security any more than it's about ours. the right wants a hawk at defense for all occasions. someone with an itchy trigger fing mother has always got a country lind up to go to war with, iraq, afghanistan, iraq again, libya, syria, iran. sorry, the guy you lined up to be president would have picked a person you'd want as defense chief, a real genuine hawk, but mitt romney lost, didn't he? he lost. so keep firing off those anti-hagel columns and editorials, my right wing brothers, and don't worry, you won't get hurt. it's why they don't give you purp
